Company Profile

BDI is a clean energy company focusing in the HVAC market. We have taken the initiative to reinvent the heating and cooling industry’s core product, duct systems. These sheet metal duct systems have not evolved or improved in well over 100 years. We plan to change that. Our products will save fuel, provide optimum indoor comfort, improve our health and save the planet too!

BDI’s products have a global application and unlimited opportunity for growth and revenue. In addition to our flagship product (Black Duct) we have many more products that have been patented or are patent pending that address a wide spectrum of building applications. We are a company that has every intention of being a diverse, global supplier of products that will innovate the way we heat and cool our homes and businesses around the world.
